MIbb Robo Fox has severed her
con lection with the St. Bernard Min
ing Co and will go this week to her
home in Louisville for a rest of some
two montbB .or more. Her goiug
brings expressions .of sincere re
gret from many quarters in Ear

of Bervtce as professional nurse at
St. Bernard Hospital, aud in many
Earlington bouses, she haB endeared
ed herself greatly to our people, who
if they coul deoide the matter would
retain bor indefinitely.
Misa Fox' duties have been ard
uous and the necessity tor rest has
induced her to abandon fsr a time
her good work and to spend a while
with her kinfolks at home. Miss
Mary Meehun, whose native home
was in Couuty Galway on tho West
cpast of Ireland, has been installed
as Mips Fox' successor and haB for
some days been performing the du
